[Visual Basic]
null No Represents the "FFilter" entry of the stream object.




Represents the "FFilter" entry of the stream object.

It is an optional entry defined as part of the PDF 1.2 specification.

It contains an array which contains strings, representing PDF name objects.

Items in this array may take one of the following valid values:.

  • ASCIIHexDecode
  • ASCII85Decode
  • LZWDecode
  • FlateDecode
  • RunLengthDecode
  • CCITTFaxDecode
  • JBIG2Decode
  • DCTDecode
  • JPXDecode
  • Crypt

If you read the specification you will see that an array of one string may be represented as a single string rather than an array. However we always present this property as an array to simplify the interface. It is only if you add or remove items in the array, that the underlying representation will be changed.
